Today, I Cry

d886c8fe3aa17274efb1b85656f48b4c

I cried today,

Not the gut wrenching kind

Not the ugly faced whaling

I cried today,

Silent, slow and pained tears

Lonely, burning, sad tears

I cried today,

ee7dd90f1988ec69623ded4daa552d96

Because I realised just how invisible I am to you

Taken for granted, yet invisible

I cried today,

Because you don’t register the pain I’m in

I cried today,

For a love that is slowly extinguishing

I cried today,

For the years behind us, for the tough times we fought through

I cried today,

Because I don’t actually know if you care

So I continue to cry…
